Elaborate composition and beautifully carved. The cameo is mounted in 12k gold, also a generous sized brooch mount, hinged pin and c-clamp. We'd put this to late Victorian or possibly Edwardian era, and expect that it was someone's thrilling Grand Tour souvenir. Mostly carved by artisans in the area from Naples and souther shores of Italy.
Very good to excellent condition, no chips or cracks, no damage to report. The gold has been tested, the hinged pin and c-clamp are tightly in place and I see nothing to report by way of flaws. We're easy to deal with.
